Exercisers, Muscle Strength, Lever/Pulley-Cable, Upper Limb/Trunk, Back, Row
Definition : Muscle strength exercisers that simulate the motion of rowing using a mechanism based on a system of pulleys and cables or levers. These exercisers usually consist of a stand-alone machine with weights stacked on top of each other or a hydraulic mechanism, a system to transmit the force (i.e., to convey the resistance), and lever bars or pulley cables on which the user exerts force to counteract the exerciser resistance. Users grasp the lever bar or cable handles and pull them out toward their waist. Rowing strength exercisers are intended to improve the muscle strength in the back (trapezius and latissimus dorsi muscles), increase muscle size, enhance muscle endurance and improve power, and bone density. Dedicated row strength exercisers using pulley cables or lever bars are available.
